There's a rumble in the Jungle!

Hello everyone, today I have made a card for a couple of challenges, this week's Simply Magnolia Challenge has a theme of anything goes, Secret Crafter challenge 140 has a theme of embossing, and I have followed the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge 61. This is also my card for an internal challenge between the DT members at CCC.

I have used Monkey and the hanging leaves from the Magnolia Pet Collection 2009 and they are coloured with copics and I have added some glossy accents to his eyes and nose. I also used the giraffe pattern stamp from the same collection and I stamped it with vintage photo distress ink to create the patterned card.

The DP is from MME and the leaves are all embossed. The buttons, twine and twill ribbon are all from my stash.

I used the giraffe pattern stamp once again to create a pocket to hold money or a gift card. Finally the sentiment is a stamped one I had in my stash and it is a penny black one (I think!)

Card/Paper: White and brown card. MME - bloom and grow
Stamps: Magnolia - Monkey, Hanging Leaves, Giraffe Pattern - Pet Collection 2009. Sentiment - Penny Black
Colouring: Copics - G21, YG67, YG11, R20, R22, B000, B00, C1, 0, E31, E33, E35, E37, E41, E43, E47
 Embellishments: Ribbon, buttons, twine, glossy accents
 Tools: Sewing machine, trouvaille, nesties
